2015 Fort Worth Opera Festival: Hamlet
The 2015 Fort Worth Opera Festival will conclude with the regional premiere of Ambroise Thomas' retelling of Shakespeare's Hamlet. From the moment guests enter Bass Hall, they will be catapulted into the haunting world of intrigue and vengeance with a set recalling images of a stark Soviet-era city.
This production will welcome baritone Wes Mason back to FWOpera in the title role, while Rod Nelman will portray the lecherous Claudius. Robynne Redmon will appear as Gertrude, and Talise Trevigne will take on the challenging role of Ophelia in her FWOpera debut, following her role in Jake Heggie's Moby Dick with the Dallas Opera.
